Governance handbook

  • This provides guidance to colleagues on governance procedures and standard templates and will be updated shortly in line with our new structure. 

Delegation framework

  • The delegation framework sets out the location of authority within the University for decisions made in the University’s name and on its behalf. The delegation framework supports the governance arrangements for Council, Senate and the University Executive Board (UEB) and its sub-groups. Within the Framework, lines of delegation are either through the line management hierarchy or operate through functional relationships where there is a senior leader with executive or management responsibility for a strategic area. 

    The latest version of the Delegation Framework (approved by Council on 12 December 2023) can be accessed here: Delegation Framework (2023)
